Antimo Caputo Chef’s Flour – Italian Double Zero 00
The Chef’s flour is a general purpose, high gluten flour that works well for many recipes. You can use it for pizza crust, pasta making, bread, and pastries.
“Tipo 00” refers to how refined the flour is, and indicates that it is refined further than regular flour, and that results in using less of the outer parts of the wheat, while also creating a very finely ground product. Tipo “00” is the finest grade of flour milled in Italy, and it has a consistency similar to baby powder.
We recommend that Chef’s Flour be used for those who want to bake in their traditional home oven. This flour is great for home ovens up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit! If you are looking for a flour that works well in higher temperature ovens, we suggest you try our Caputo “00” Pizzeria Flour Blue.
Since 1924, we have ground wheat with generosity and passion so as offer professionals and baking connoisseurs the very best in quality flour, produced with great respect for the raw ingredients and traditions.
Authority, spontaneity and tradition
The flour art of Caputo is born from these three values. Thanks to the experience developed over three generations as Master Neapolitan Millers we promise extremely high standards of quality so that the expert restaurateurs and … artisans could express their creativity in the best possible way.
The Method of Caputo
We have always select and mixed the best wheat in the tradition of the ancient art of milling, following a slow grinding process. This Method permit us to obtain high quality flours preserving the starch, the organoleptic properties and, most of all, the authenticity of the flavour.
This is the art of Caputo
We mix a lot of qualities of the national wheat coming from Umbria, Marche and other Italian regions to obtain the base of our product. Later we mix them with wheats from the North of Europe, particularly from France, German and Finland. Thus our products are extremely natural, we also do not use artificial enzyme and extra additives.
This is the art of Caputo, the Mill of Naples.
